Each beer shows the uniqueness of each yeast strain through our split batching process.


Oktoberfest (another name for Marzen) was brewed for the inaugural event on October 12, 1810, and the nuptials of Prince Ludwig (later King Ludwig I) and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen that lasted until October 17th. By the late 1890s, organizers shifted the start date to late September to catch some milder weather but by allowing the festival to extend into early October. The festivities include beer and food stands, agricultural competitions, carnival rides and live cooking which still remains an essential part of Oktoberfest Festival.
